Transferring data from a WinXP Hard drive

Hi folks

Transferring data from a WinXP Hard drive

Fedora Core 2

This PC has another HD mounted on mobile rack having 2 partitions with partition-1 (C-drive) running WinXP and partition-2 (D-drive) for data storage of about 2G in capacity. Now I need to copy all data in D-drive to this HD running FC2 (40G in capacity). Can I make it in following arrangement

a) Connected WinXP as slave
b) Start the PC
c)Create a mount point for WinXP
d) Mount D-drive of WinXP HD
e) Copy all its data to FC2 HD with 'drag and drop' method on Konqueror/Nautilus

I did it about 3 years ago but could not remember the exact steps. This method is much faster than burning all data on CDs and then copying them to FC2 HD.

Please shed me some light or advise me whether there are other more convenient methods. Tks

B.R.

Hi imdeemvp,

Tks for your advice.

I'm not quite sure about the file system of WinXP because I have not run it for long time. I'll find it out later.

Regarding the package on your link whether after its installation I will be allowed to mount WinXP drive and tranfer its files to FC2 drive.

B.R.

Hi Moderator,

Tks for your URL.

I'm luck having FAT32 on WinXP both C and D-drives

On WinXP
started Window Explorer --> right click 'Local Disk [D:]' --> properties
Local Disk [D:] Properties
Type Local Disk
File System FAT32
Used space 2.37 GB
Free space 423 MB

I will get all data files on D-drive copied to FC2 later and then erase WinXP making use of the HD for other tests.

Tks

B.R.
